Jury Selection

Jury selection is one of the most important aspects of trial and, yet too many lawyers show up unprepared. They either believe it’s okay to wing it, or give up in advance, having no faith in themselves or the process. This is despite knowing that cases can be won or lost with just one wrong decision.

We are here to change that. With our assistance, you will show up prepared; ready, willing and able to ask good questions, and effective follow-up, which will allow you to exercise your peremptories wisely, and expand the number of jurors excused for cause.

We can help you experience meaningful voir dire with our behind-the-scenes assistance, or we can be shoulder-to-shoulder in the courtroom, helping you quickly assess all of the available information so you can make quick strategic decisions.

If you are tired of questions that garner only silence, and analyzing people with nothing better than a stereotype, see if we can help you reach higher ground. 


Juror Questionnaires
We can also assist you in that special case where a written juror questionnaire is needed. The questionnaires we craft don’t take up extra court time or ask way too many questions that lead you nowhere. Our approach always increases efficiency, while allowing lawyers (and the judge) to know vastly more about each juror without the need for much follow-up. In fact, if you get to experience this yourself, you will see that you will get a true feel for a juror before you even lay eyes on him or her.


In Court Assistance
In most jurisdictions, jury selection is extremely fast-paced. Our ability to quickly hone in on jurors’ subtleties gives attorneys another perspective that helps them gain a deeper understanding of jurors' values, motivations, and decision-making processes.


Social Media Research
It is becoming routine for lawyers to research jurors’ social media profiles during jury selection. In many cases, lawyers get the jury selection lists in advance. Our investigators can cull through those lists so that you aren’t learning this information on the very day of jury selection. If you have no choice but to learn it on the very day of jury selection, it’s best when someone (other than you!) is obtaining that information quickly and expertly, so it can be one more piece of information to factor into the whole.

 

"Carolyn Koch and Jury Solutions have given us and our clients timely and sage advice based on mock trials. There are at least two advantages to Carolyn. Her approach is highly personal. She doesn't delegate important tasks. She learns the facts and the law of the case. Then she works with counsel to draft descriptions for presentations to the jury panels. She takes charge and makes sure of the details. She does not allow the lawyers to "wing it." (We used as many as five panels over a weekend in a single case). Carolyn impresses the most sophisticated and demanding clients (and their in-house counsel and executives) with her energy and organization. Clients who have not used mock trials are often skeptical, and have to be persuaded. They are converted when the results are in. I do not hesitate to recommend Jury Solutions when the case justifies using a mock trial."
